Sweet Valentine's Treats using Amazing Mold Putty

Happy New Year!!! Hello...Susan here with a new "AMAZING" adventure with Amazing Mold Putty. Today I am a little sticky, and having so much fun making some fun Valentine's Day treats.

DID YOU KNOW????
Amazing Mold Putty is FOOD SAFE!!! YES - I said food safe. You can use it for candy molds, jello, cupcakes...and more. JUST as long as you don't put any RESIN in it first. When you make an Amazing Mold Putty mold for food purposes...it can only be used for food/edible products. To mix up Amazing Mold Putty, I followed the simple illustrated instructions on the packaging. If you want a more in depth how-to of mixing Amazing Mold Putty please click here.

Today's project I am casting some fun Valentine's shapes in Amazing Mold Putty. I couldn't resist when I found this at my local favorite Dollar Tree! A lollypop with some fun cartoony lips on the front. I must make a candy/food mold for Valentine's Day goodies.


Please see accompanying image number(s) to go along with written instruction/description.


Photo 1: Mix equal parts of part A and Part B of Amazing Mold Putty and blend evenly. Then place plastic lips into putty and let cure. Photo 2: Completed heart shape removed from cured mold. Photo 3: The base of lip mold was a thin in three places {where three red spots are}. This was repaired by creating another small ball of putty and molding it to the bottom of existing cured mold. Photo 4: I had some chocolate mint peppermint bark in my fridge, so I decided to melt this down to pour in my NEW candy molds. I broke up the chocolate into a small pyrex bowl that I placed into a pot of simmering water {a double boiler]. This is a slow melting process. The candy melted fine, but the peppermint candy in the chocolate altered the consistency of the chocolate. Photo 5: Melted chocolate poured into molds. I put these in refrigerator to harden. When hardened, I removed from mold - but they did not look good...they resembled soggy brownies. So now to the Godiva White Chocolate.

Photo 6: I broke up the white Godiva chocolate into small pieces and placed in my makeshift double boiler. I added several drops of red food coloring and stirred into the melted chocolate. Photos 7: Close-up of lip mold filled with tinted white chocolate. Photo 8: I poured melted chocolate into the heart shape mold and into another mold I have prepared for another project - but not yet utilized. Photos 9, 10 and 11: Completed chocolate after hardening in the refrigerator. The result is a little soft and melts to the touch very easily. So I do recommend getting proper melting chocolates from the craft store. I was just using what I had on hand at home.


Amazing Mold Putty will withstand temperatures up to 395 degrees. So this is perfect for cake batter and cookies which bake at 325-350 degrees. So I also tried some ready made sugar cookie dough nuggets {these are pre-measured discs for perfect shape cookies}. I let the dough get to room temperature then pressed into the molds. PLEASE NOTE: these cookies were twice as tall during baking. I removed half of the dough midway through the baking process since they were about a 1/2" out of the molds. I used a knife and gently lifted of the top of each. I will have to experiment more with the cookie dough, so that I won't get an overdone cookie with the crunch of a dog biscuit. But they do look tasty! I topped each with red gel icing....Mmmmmm-mmmmmmm!!!!

The icing on the cake is the J-E-L-L-O lips! I poured cherry gelatin mix prepared following instructions for molding gelatin on package. I did pour into the other heart molds, except that because my fridge underwent a power outage during the day - then reset itself to default settings...all of the gelatin came out frozen. The lips survived - and they are luscious!!!
